I enjoy spending time with my family, boyfriend and friends. I enjoy going to the gym and dancing in Zumba class. I cook to calm myself and love trying new recipes, sometimes not even going by a recipe at all. Travelling, dancing, music and hiking are a few of my favorite things.
My favorite things to cook
Corn Pudding, Tortilla Pie, any baked item for someone special in my life, Middle Eastern Lebneh, my recipe of Granola Bars and all different kinds of Biscotti. I also LOVE making pesto...and eating it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love making jam with mom in the summertime.
Love using fresh basil from a pot on my deck to make Pesto.
I make great fudge at Christmas too!!!
My cooking triumphs
When I was 12 I won first place for Teddy Bear Bread! They were sooo cute, I'll have to find the recipe. I'm sure I have a picture too of when I won! Ahhh the sweet days
My cooking tragedies
Potato Casserole (Burnt Foot Casserole) one Christmas this 425 degree fully cooked casserole fell on my foot and gave me blisters for more than month!!! It was very painful, and the casserole was not very tasty after that either :0)
